Earlier this week Jim Ross’ wife, Jan, was involved in a Vespa accident in which she was hit from behind by a 17-year-old driver. Jan suffered multiple skull fractures and was rushed to the hospital for surgery. JR noted on his blog that the swelling in her brain needed to subside if she had any shot at survival, but unfortunately the former WWE commentator took to Twitter to reveal that his wife was read her last rights by a priest before passing away tonight (Wed. March 22, 2017):
A Priest gave my wife Jan her last rites tonight. My little Angel is gone. 🙏🙏

Our thoughts and prayers here at Wrestling-Edge are with the Ross family at this time.
